RideAmigos Ridematching Software

Sign-up to start finding rideshare matches in your local area and to log your commute so you can see how much pollution you’re reducing and the money you’re saving.

With COVID-19 and the mandated “shelter-down” order, CommuteKern recognizes
many commuters are now working from home.

To help with managing this new way of work, we have partnered with other rideshare programs throughout the Central Coast and provided four FREE webinars on teleworking during COVID-19 and beyond.

CommuteKern is here to help with this transition any way we can.

How We Are Here To Help

You bring the people. We provide the matching.

Carpool/Vanpool

When two or more people commute in a car for work or school purposes, it’s called a carpool. Arrangements may vary. One person may drive and split costs such as gas and parking with passengers or carpoolers may choose to alternate driving and not split costs. Carpoolers may meet at a central location or pick up individuals from homes and work sites. Carpools can include family members. In addition to the traditional commute-related carpools, this site may be used for special events, such as concerts or conferences. Please contact CommuteKern to have your event listed.

Transit

Public transportation services are available throughout Kern County. If you set up an account on the carpool and vanpool matching website, you may find public transit routes to help you with your commute.

Bicycle

Bicycling is a great way to commute to school or work. While on your ride, you can enjoy beautiful scenery, great exercise and a rewarding feeling of reducing polluting emissions in our air. Kern County struggles with bad air quality, and as our community continues to grow, traffic congestion is becoming more of an issue. By bicycling to work or school, you can do your part to help reduce energy consumption and increase your monthly earnings by not having to spend so much for gas.
